Details

Porthcurno was once the world’s most important cable station and was connected to more than 100,000 miles of cable radiating out under the oceans linking one cable station to another in a global network.

In 1941 this important communications site was relocated under ground to protect it from enemy attack.

A unique feature of a visit to Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is the opportunity to enter the underground telegraph station and see original equipment actually working, an in depth coverage of the subject!
